Check out these exclusive images from Stefan Glowacz's 'Roraima: Climbers of the Lost World' movie.
New movie 'Roraima: Climbers of the Lost World' tells the story of three German climbers Stefan Glowacz, Kurt Albert and Holger Heuber, who set out to conquer one of the world’s toughest mountaineering challenges.
On Mount Roraima, situated on the border point of Brazil, Venezuela and Guyana exists La Proa (The Bow), which in mountaineering circles is a wall rated the most difficult to climb.
Just reaching the base of Mount Roraima (pictured above) is enough to put most people off. Trekking for weeks on end across terrain filled with deadly snakes isn't for everyone.
Determination in abundance is required just for the trek, let alone the actual climb.
The crew's first attempt failed when Stefan Glowacz suffered an injury, but in this image Stefan shows that he will never give up on a challenge.
Finally, the team reach their goal and just to make things even tougher they pledged to only use ‘fair means’ to climb La Proa, which essentially means without any technical assistance unless their lives absolutely depended upon it.
Glowacz and Heuber were even more determined to complete their mission following the tragic death of Kurt Albert in a climbing accident in Bavaria and Stefan is pictured above in the early stages of the climb.

Stefan takes time out during the climb. Not the most comfortable position for a stop, but you can't beat the views!
Glowacz and Heuber climbed more than 16 pitches between the 9th and 10th degree of difficulty, which equals 8b on the French scale. And looking at this image, rather them than us!
Photographer Klaus Fengler gets up close to get a shot of Stefan's hand as me makes the ascent.
The fearless Glowacz shows how it's done.
